London - Two-time French Open semi-finalist Timea Bacsinszky has pulled out of Wimbledon because of an injured lower right leg. 

The All England Club said Saturday that Bacsinszky will be replaced in the field by Mariana Duque-Marino of Colombia, who lost in the final round of qualifying to 2014 Wimbledon runner-up Eugenie Bouchard. 

Duque-Marino will face Alison Riske of the US in the first round on Tuesday. The winner of that match could face No 6 seed Caroline Garcia in the second round. 

Bacsinszky, who is from Switzerland, and Yanina Wickmayer, from Belgium, will be replaced in the doubles draw by Nicola Geuer of Germany and Viktorija Golubic of Switzerland.
